We want your help with developing our citywide Skateboard Amenities Strategy called CitySkate. Your feedback will help shape a long range plan for improving the skateboard facilities within our park system in addition to finding opportunities for skateboarding (and other small wheeled sports) in public spaces within the city.

The Skateboard Amenities Strategy is guided by VanPlay, Vancouver’s Parks and Recreation Services Master Plan, which represents a strong commitment to equitable delivery of excellent parks and recreation opportunities, including improving access to and availability of skateboard amenities.

We want to hear from everyone, from those who are on their boards daily to those who have never been on one. When skate amenities are planned and designed with strong community input, they not only become beloved destinations for local youth but celebrated public spaces for everyone to enjoy.

Over the course of the project, we will complete two main phases of public engagement and we look forward to getting your input on this second phase. Phase 1 was completed in June and results can be found in the documents tab. The Phase 2 survey will be available October 12 - November 2, 2021. Results from this next survey will also be available here in December 2021. We intend to share the final recommendations in March 2022.

Potential Skate Sites

20 days

As we develop the CitySkate Strategy, the Vancouver Park Board is exploring potential future skate spaces in parks.

This map organizes the city into four districts: Stanley District, North District, South District and West District. Within each district, several parks have been identified as having potential to support a new skatepark.

These locations are being explored at a very preliminary level and would be examined in much greater detail with extensive public engagement if selected. Please note that the pins do not indicate specific locations in each park.

After reviewing this map, please take our survey to let us know if you support any of these potential locations, or if there are other parks you think should be included.


Districts key (map areas):

Stanley District: Yellow

North District: Black

South District: Pink

West District: Blue

Locations key (pins):

Dark green pins indicate existing skateparks

Light green pins indicate potential future skatepark locations
